Splunk admin and developer tools
Splunk provides the Upgrade Readiness App to scan an entire Splunk Enterprise instance for components impacted by the Python 3 migration. TheUpgrade Readiness app identifies removed features and list file paths to Python files so that you can update them. For more information, see Upgrade Readiness.
Also, the AppInspect tools now checks for features that will be impacted by Python 3 migration, using either the AppInspect CLI or API. AppInspect will scan for features that require revision as prerequisites for upgrading to Splunk Enterprise version 8.x. AppInspect will not scan for Python scripts in particular, but developers can use the Splunk Upgrade Readiness app, or identify Python scripts that require revision due to the Python 3 migration following the guidance covered in Python development with Splunk Enterprise. For more information, see the Splunk AppInspect tool.
